"Can't believe this… standards at the Republic Health Administration must be nonexistent! I went to medical school with the new acting head."
―Archiban Kimble[src]

The Republic Health Administration was the government organization responsible for overseeing the Galactic Republic's medical facilities, studies, and resources. Based on the Republic's capital world of Coruscant, the Administration appointed a new acting head[1] in 3642 BBY[2]a doctor who had developed a cure for the low-grade flesh-eating virus known as Zabrak Scalp Necrosis. His appointment prompted scorn from one of the doctor's former classmates, Archiban Kimble, as the man's poor medical skills and low intelligence had been notorious during their time at the First Republic Medical Academy of Coruscant, the University of Coruscant's medical program.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Administration was first mentioned in the BioWareLucasArts video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, during the conversation "Opportunity Knocks" with the Jedi Knight class' companion character Archiban Kimble, known in-game as "Doc."[1]
